First off I am sorry. This show of his and probably most of the pieces of his I have seen from most of his past shows just does not translate into the gallery very well in my opinion. I certainly see and agree with his relevance in street art history especially for the major influence he seems to have had in getting Banksy into this art form, but much as Banksy appears to be doing, he should leave it in the streets were it belongs. Obviously these are just my opinions, and i do wish him continued success as an artist and in life, as well do I hope any one who is so inclined is able to have their own Blek piece in their home, is able to make that happen. I even own some Blek pieces that I quite enjoy. I just think these pieces seem rushed, where that makes sense and fits in the street for obvious reasons, when work goes into the gallery I feel like the artists has as much time as they need to be ultra meticulous and make sure each detail is flawless to their style.
Again, I am not trying to bash Blek or JLG, I just personally am puzzled at the quality and content being offered here
You worded your thoughts carefully, and I tend to agree with you. The last piece shown in Sleepboy's post is a classic example of an image that does not translate well to a gallery setting. What is the woman holding? Seen in situ, this question would never be asked.
